Patriotic Review 29 July 2023 The Dog Days of Summer

Patriotic Review 29 July 2023 The Dog Days of Summer


My fellow Patriots,

Here we are in the dog days of summer and things are heating up all over and I don’t mean the weather. I very much appreciate all the folks that turned out to protest Drag Queen Story Hour at our libraries. As expected, there were several incidents that necessitated the filing of police reports. The rainbow thieves are the instigators of these incidents and the Library Director always sides with them. He even trespassed an individual that was merely filming at the event because he insisted the individual was “inciting” people. Unfortunately, these incidents are only going to escalate, and the County is going to have to pay out huge sums when they get sued. It could all be avoided by simply removing this event from our libraries. I have talked with several of our elected representatives and asked that this event is no longer held in our libraries, but I do not hold out any hope that they will act accordingly. This is a struggle that will take an ongoing presence of Patriots at the Library Board of Trustee meetings and at the County Commissioner meetings. In response to the reading of books to children by adult entertainers, LeRue Press in conjunction with Wake Up Washoe County, is having a storytime for children featuring books by Kirk Cameron (see below). It is my hope that we fill the room to capacity so the Library Director can see just how popular wholesome stories read by normal citizens can be. What an opportunity to counter the rainbow thieves! I hope to see you there.

The Spanish Springs Citizens Advisory Board meeting will prove to be informative if not downright entertaining as there will be a presentation on the Lands Bill. This will impact many of us and I know there are many passionate views on both sides of the issue. I encourage you to research this issue and bring your opinion to the CAB meeting.

There is also a call for adults to read books and evaluate them as to their suitability in both our school and county libraries (see below).

The children of Washoe County are in need of adults to step up for them and read books which must be removed from our school libraries due to the explicit content. There are over 150 books to be read, evaluated, and documented before they can be submitted with a request for removal. If 75 of us each read two books the task would quickly be completed. Will you consider reading a book or two this summer for the children of Washoe County?
Contact: to volunteer. Please include your preference for reading elementary or secondary school level books.

Juanita Cox

  Juanita Elaine Cox passed away peacefully on the morning of July 15, 2023, after suffering from cancer. Juanita was born on February 18, 1948, in Santa Monica, California, the first daughter of John and Vernetta Sopher. The family moved to Reno, Nevada shortly after Juanita was born where she attended local schools and graduated from Wooster High School in 1966. Juanita worked for the City of Sparks from 1966 through 1976 as a systems analyst. Juanita was very active in the dog breeding and show community, where she bred collies, shelties, and salukis. In the 1980s, she became active against nuclear testing in Nevada as well as rallying against dumping nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain. Later, her activism turned towards social justice and constitutional rights protections. Juanita was an activist for 50+ years, a registered (unpaid) lobbyist for 30 years, researcher for several published books, participant in a local public access television show, a paralegal, and parliamentarian.

Juanita is preceded in death by her father John, mother Vernetta, brother-in-law James Lusk, and husband of 40 years, David Cox. She is survived by stepsons Greg Cox (Susan), Joe Cox, stepdaughter Deni Cox (Kevin), and daughter Lisa (Scott), eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, sisters Kathy Whalen (Bill) and Rosie Lusk, numerous nieces and nephews, and a large extended family. She will be missed by many.

The family will be holding a private memorial and Juanita’s friends will be holding a larger celebration of life at the American Legion, 730 4th St, Sparks on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at noon. Given Juanita’s passion for causes, in lieu of flowers, please donate to a cause that you are passionate about in her honor.

Patriotic Review 5 Feb 23 The 82nd Legislature and More

My fellow Patriots,

The legislative session starts this Monday and I am very anxious about the bills that our democrat controlled legislature will introduce. I expect to see more money being wasted on education, an expansion of the voting regulations, an increase in taxes, attacks on the 2nd Amendment, and a focus on social justice issues. What I would like to see, but have no hope for, is a repeal of AB 321 which allows for ballot harvesting among other things. I would also hope for Constitutional Carry for Nevada but I don’t expect to see that. The point here is that we must all be involved if we want to see change. It is not at all difficult to email your representatives when there is a bad bill being brought forward. You may also attend hearings via Zoom or even call in and voice your concerns. Janine Hanson with Eagle Forum is conducting Citizen Lobbyist training for persons that want to take a more active role in what comes from our lawmakers (see opportunities below and read more here). I strongly encourage all of you that desire to influence the outcome of this legislative session to get involved at some level. After all, our legislators are supposed to represent us. But they cannot do that if they do not know what is important to us. By communicating our concerns, we expose those elected officials that listen to the people and those that ignore the people and push their own agenda. Stay tuned for ways to participate in the State of Nevada 82nd Legislative Session.

Paul White is still pursuing the improvement of the Washoe County School District (WCSD) with his activities in the Education Crusade. Some of the information he has dug up is unbelievable and shows clearly that the WCSD does not have the fundamentals of education as a priority (see contact information below and read more at Another organization having multiple goals and headed up by Nichelle Hull, is Wake Up Washoe County . Their focus is not only education, it includes other issues that affect our community. One such issue is Drag Queen Story Hour in our taxpayer funded libraries. The next Library Board of Trustees meeting will be held February 15h at the Sierra View Library at 4pm. This is still an ongoing struggle to remove this program from being presented since there is ample evidence that shows how this program is harmful to children. There is only one single email address, for ALL of the Trustees to receive your comments, a very odd sitution to say the least. Finally, “Save The Date” for February 28th. There will more more information coming regarding this date.

I want you all to know how much I appreciate what every individual stepping up to make our community a better place to live and raise a family means to me. I am proud call you all Patriots!

Patriotic Review: 18 October, 2022

Patriotic Review: 18 October, 2022

Hello fellow Patriots,

It’s time for the Washoe County Library Board of Trustees to meet.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2022 4:00 P.M.
Sparks Library 1125 12th St, Sparks, NV 89431

10/19/2022 – Agenda – Minutes – Hybrid – Virtual Meeting & Sparks Library

We did request (by email to the Library Director) that Drag Queen Story Hour be placed on the Agenda for discussion and resolution, yet we did not meet the time requirements for it to be agendized this meeting.

Please note that meetings for the Library Board were cancelled for the months of June, July and August of 2022. This is in the Agenda Packet. It is somewhat disconcerting that with the record attendance at the September meeting and the concerns regarding Drag Queen Story Hour that the item was not placed on the Agenda without a public request.

From the Agenda Packet:

“Library Director Update 10/10/22
Library Board of Trustees Update
Our next LBOT meeting will be on October 19 at the Sparks Library. You will notice minor edits to the bylaws and new agenda format emphasizing patron conduct. We had many public comments at the September meeting protesting the Drag Queen Storytime. I am unsure why they chose September to protest when we have our Pride events in June and July. I know libraries were generally under attack during Banned Books Week (the same week as our board meeting), which forced libraries to close due to bomb threats. I have met with our county counsel and board chair about conduct during the meeting and how to handle it. I am confident that we will be able to maintain order in future meetings.”

Problems with the Drag Queen Story Hour around the country:

Should the Drag Queen Story Hour become agendized, we will send you an email.

I’ll be there at the meeting Wednesday,

Bruce Parks

Patriotic Review: Time to Meet the Candidates Meeting 14 April 2022

Patriotic Review: Time to Meet the Candidates Meeting 14 April 2022

My Fellow Patriots,

I am excited about our upcoming meeting this Thursday! Eddie Lorton, the only Conservative Candidate running for Mayor of Reno (, will be speaking about the past, present and future (I am sure) dysfunction of the Reno City Council. I can assure you that you have no idea how bad it is. I have also invited other candidates to come and introduce themselves to you. As this is an election year, I think it is imperative that you get to meet as many of the candidates as possible so you can make informed decisions at the ballot box. I know, I know. I meant Post Office box! Joel Beck ( will be introducing himself as Candidate for Congressional District 2, a seat currently held by Mark Amodei. There will also be a speaker informing us about the dysfunction of our Registrar of Voter office. We all know about how the DMV is changing registrations without the voter being aware of it. But wait! There’s more! I hope to see you all there.
